Union Craft Old Pro Gose
Canned 4/7/16, drunk 7/24/16.
Light haze to this muted gold body. Small white head is thin and shows low retention.
Nice peachy fruitiness with moderate salinity, soft, creamy malts and biscuity, light wheat. Very solid with no flaw or alcohol.
Floral and lightly cidery, with soft lactic character, low carbonation and a good maltiness. Nicely attenuated. Not overly salty or sour and light and easygoing for a good summer quencher. Like the lingering lemon juice character...

Union Craft Old Pro Gose
Crisp clear golden and lightly caramel coloured body with a thin, fast-dying pure white head. Aroma of sour grapes, light malt, yeast, lemons, citrus, salt and a touch of cherries - very nice. Super light-bodied; Great super sour flavour at first with lemons, sour grapes, cherries, salt, yeast and funk all noticeable initially. Aftertaste shows some nice robust lemon, citrus, yeast, wheat, cherry, lemon and puckering sourness - very nice and surprisingly complex for such a light and unassuming beer. Overall, a very nice gose, perhaps one of the best i’ve ever had - a flavourful beer with not much alcohol and especially no body - which makes it easy to drink a lot of these, and that’s fine, given they have so much flavour and especially a lot of sourness. Definitely a nice beer worth trying to find and/or get if at all possible and you like the style. I sampled this 32 ounce growler fill (as well as a twelve ounce can from another store) purchased on draught from Whole Foods in Fair Lakes (Fairfax), Virginia on 16-July-2016 and had the last bit of the growler on 21-July-2016 for US$5,00 and it still stood up - in a very nice way.

Union Craft Chessie Barleywine
Söt, dammig, kvalmig doft med honungsinslag. Evaporerar snabbt. Vackert gyllene kopparfärg. Varaktig skum. Maltbemängd, men ändå tunn smak med söta citrusfrukter, citron, honung och tallbarr i paletten. Intressant kombination men smakar för mycket alkohol. Len, halvfyllig kropp. Eftersmaken har en pepprig, söt klang.

On tap at the barbecue place down the street from the brewery. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, some light floral hops, some toast and a light grain note. Not bad but a little off on the aftertaste. Should probably have just ordered a natty bo. Oh well, new tick.

Can via the Slothenstein! Murky amber in glass with a head that whisps away like discarded tickets at the horse track in a storm. Some sticky lacing. Yup. Big, bold and strong body supports the biting grapefruitesque hops. Nice bit of malt emergence for finish... you, BERT!

Hazy golden body under a thick foamy white head. Big hop nose, pine resin, grapefruit and lime. Balanced flavor, plenty of PNW hops with just enough malts to keep it sessionable. Flavor lingers long and peppery with tart citrus. ~~~~ 12 oz. can, purchased "somewhere in Baltimore" (according to my wife).

A cask version on tap at the ChurckKey in DC. It is hard to believe this is a 9.8% BW - a thin, slightly metallic taste with some sweetness and roasted malt. The body is thin as well. I know cask versions are often not as punchy as their keg brothers, but this is a big disappointment.

Cloudy very light colour, frothy head. Lots of lacto on the nose, just a clean kettle sour on this one. Salty sour character, some peachy fruit notes. Nice rounded mf, finishes with a good sweet, salty, tart balance that is not easy to achieve. Good gose.

Thanks Bobby (aka Bobbed on untapped). Mentioning the canning date because this bad boy held up like a champ. 03/23/16. This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance had a slight cloudy off color yellow haze to it with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated nicely. One ring of white foamy lacing rims around the glass. The smell takes in white pepper, crisp lemon, sweet wheat, sweet grass, honey, light tropical fruits - leans towards more papaya as it warms. The taste pretty much rubs the white pepper into the lemon to wheat sweetness. Starts to sharpen in the aftertaste almost making it non-existent. Quick dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice crisp sweet sessionability about it. Carbonation seems to hit decently. Overall, damn nice AIPA or white IPA, not sure, but whatever its supposed to be, I thought it was absolutely wonderful and even held up from the date. Would love to have again preferably with some grilled swordfish steak. Would be awesome.
